City of Desolation (Internal geography model)

The city Desolation was built on the borders of the land Desolation, “by the narrow pass which led into the land southward”. Desolation repeatedly changed hands during battles between Lamanites and Nephites near the end of the Nephite civilization. Mormon lamented the barbarity and carnage of the period, declaring that “there never had been so great wickedness among all the children of Lehi, nor even among all the house of Israel”.
